Oscar nominee Clive Owen will play Bill Clinton opposite Beanie Feldstein’s Monica Lewinsky in FX’s IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY. Owens received the Oscar nomination for his role in Closer that played opposite Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman and Jude Law.
The success of this franchise has been indisputable so it should be really good especially considering that The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, won nine Emmy awards.
Owen joins Sarah Paulson, who will play Linda Tripp, and Annaleigh Ashford, who will play Paula Jones in the limited series, on which Lewinsky serves as a producer. The role of Hillary Clinton is currently being cast.
Filming on Impeachment, from Fox 21 Television Studios/FX Production, is set to begin in late March. The limited series is currently slated to premiere on Sunday, September 27, 2020, about a month out from the next U.S. Presidential election, but Murphy recently indicated the date may be in flux as the filming schedule has changed.
We can only hope that producers and writers are extremely transparent about what happened and expose the real truth about the Clintons.
